UK Singles Chart, April 23, 2011

1. Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO feat. Lauren Bennett & GoonRock

LMFAO scores their first official #1 hit as "Party Rock Anthem" ascends to the top of the chart this week. They appeared as guest vocalists on David Guetta's "Gettin' Over You," but now can claim a #1 hit as headliners. One of the featured singers on this track has an X Factor connection: Lauren Bennett was one-half of the duo Fusion that was rejected during the third season boot camp.

3. E.T. - Katy Perry feat. Kanye West

Katy Perry climbs three spots to #3, making "E.T." the fourth single from Teenage Dream to reach the top 3. Three is a magic number for Perry. In addition to "Teenage Dream," the two singles she lended guest vocals to in 2009 both peaked at #3 (3Oh!3's "Starstrukk" and Timbaland's "If We Ever Meet Again").

4. Sweat - Snoop Dogg vs. David Guetta

Snoop Dogg's "Sweat" climbs 5 notches to #4. After "Signs," which peaked at #2, this is the second-highest Snoop Dogg has charted aside from featured appearances.

6. Someone Like You - Adele

Adele edges down three more spots on the singles chart, but the big news for her is the end of her consecutive run at #1 on the albums chart, as she sees 21 fall to #2 after 11 weeks at #1, as the Foo Fighters' Wasting Light becomes the first new #1 album since late January.

7. S&M - Rihanna

After spending a week outside the top 10, "S&M" rebounds up 5 notches to #7.

8. Beautiful People - Chris Brown feat. Benny Benassi

Chris Brown jumps 12 notches to #8 with "Beautiful People," which becomes his 7th top 10 hit. It follows "Yeah 3X," which hit #6.

14. Judas - Lady Gaga

Since this was released Friday, she only got 2 days of sales in, but that's enough to make "Judas" debut at #14. As great as that sounds, remember that "Born This Way" was similarly released on a Friday and debuted at #3--although then it never managed to climb any higher.
